Company Overview:

BuildCasa is on a mission to build 100,000 homes in existing neighborhoods. We’re solving the housing crisis by leveraging new upzoning regulations to create new lots where people want to live. Homeowners receive six figures in cash in exchange for selling their extra lot space. We manage the entire subdivision process, including financing, surveying, entitlement, and lien release, then sell the lots to local builders who use our templatized designs to build single-family and duplex starter homes.

We have a world-class team with diverse skills in architecture, sales, public policy, marketing, and data science. The founders have scaled multiple mission-driven startups from zero to 9-figures in revenue. BuildCasa is backed by millions in pre-seed funding from top VCs and real estate investors.
